The Plan of Salvation



Titus 3:3-8 "For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient,

deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy,

hateful, and hating one another. {4} But after that the kindness and love of

God our Saviour toward man appeared, {5} Not by works of righteousness which

we have done,

but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and

renewing of the Holy Ghost; {6} Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus

Christ our Saviour; {7} That being justified by his grace, we should be made

heirs according to the hope of eternal life. {8} This is a faithful saying,

and these things

I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God

might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and

profitable unto men." WHAT HAS THE FATHER DONE TO SAVE?

God, the Father, loved His creature, man, with a love that can shake the

world. The verse that most of us know so well tells how great a love God has

bestowed toward man so that man might be saved, "For God so

loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son,..." (John 3:16). God

hates sin! There comes that time in

our lives when we rebel against God and become accountable before Him. Our

sin causes God to turn His face from us, "But your iniquities have separated

between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face

from you, that he will not hear" (Isaiah 59:2). At that time we deserve

eternal death, but God chooses to show His mercy toward us (verse 5 in our

text above). Paul reminded, Ephesians 2:4 "But God, who is rich in mercy,

for his great love wherewith he loved us;" also: "And his mercy is on them

that fear him from generation to generation" (Luke 1:50). God has done His

part! WHAT HAS THE SON DONE TO SAVE?

God, the Son, loved us with a love as great as the Father's love, "Greater

love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends"

(John 15:13). Jesus said "...the Son of man is come to seek and to save

that which was lost" (Luke 19:10). What greater love can one imagine than

for one to willingly give His life that I might live. Jesus has done His

part! WHAT HAS THE SPIRIT DONE TO SAVE? God, the Holy Spirit, had a

particular task to complete. Without God's instructions, man is nothing.

Without God's instructions,

man does not know his purpose or direction. The Holy Spirit is our guide,

"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all

truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that

shall he speak: and he will show you things to come" (John 16:13). The

Spirit was sent to convict the minds of men, "And when he is come, he will

reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:" (John

16:8). This is done today through study of God's word: "Study to show

thyself approved of God; a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly

dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15). The Spirit has done His

part! WHAT MUST MAN DO TO BE SAVED? 1. He must HEAR the gospel: "How then

shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they

believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without

a preacher? (Romans 10:14). Romans 10:17 "So then faith cometh by hearing,

and hearing by the word of God." 2. He must BELIEVE: "I said therefore unto

you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye

believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins" (John 8:24). 3. He must

CONFESS: "Whosoever therefore

shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which

is in heaven" (Matthew 10:32).

Rom 10:10 "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the

mouth confession is made unto salvation." 4. He must REPENT and BE BAPTIZED:

"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the

name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the

gift of the Holy Ghost" (Acts 2:38); also "And now why tarriest thou? arise,

and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling

on the name of the Lord" (Acts 22:16); and "The like figure whereunto even

baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the

flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection

of

Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 3:21). 5. He must ADD the Christian graces to his

life: "And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and

to virtue knowledge; {6} And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance

patience; and to patience godliness; {7} And to godliness brotherly

kindness; and

to brotherly kindness charity" (2 Peter 1:5-7). The Godhead has done Their

part-have you done yours?

                                                     A Beautiful Message




A rich man looked through his window and saw a poor man picking something from his dustbin ... He said, Thank GOD I'm not poor.

The poor man looked around and saw a naked man misbehaving on the street ... He said, Thank GOD I'm not mad.

The mad man looked ahead and saw an ambulance carrying a patient ... He said, Thank GOD am not sick.

Then a sick person in hospital saw a trolley taking a dead body to the mortuary ... He said, Thank GOD I'm not dead.

Only a dead person cannot thank God. (Psalm 115:17)

Why don't you thank GOD today for all your blessings and for the gift of life ... for another beautiful day.

*What is LIFE*?

To understand life better, you have to go to 3 locations :

1. Hospital

2. Prison

3. Cemetery

🏥 At the Hospital, you will understand that nothing is more beautiful than HEALTH.

🔐 In the Prison, you'll see that FREEDOM is the most precious thing.

💐 At the Cemetery, you will realize that life is worth nothing. The ground that we walk today will be our roof tomorrow.

*Sad Truth* : We all come with *nothing* and we will go with *nothing* ... Let us, therefore, remain humble and be thankful & grateful to God at all times for everything.

Could you please share this with someone else, and let them know that God loves them?
